Google has a way of doing that. They confuse you so that you don't know WHAT to click on; hoping that you'll click on the thing they WANT you to click.
And because I'm not sure I want to get anymore involved with Google+ until I'm 100% certain I want to, I haven't touched a thing on my Google+ page in fear of what it will do. Which is why I haven't joined any circles or connected with anyone. I haven't even set up my profile page because I don't want to mess with it.
The only thing I'm HUGELY grateful for is that my blog is not connected to Google+ because my blog is on a different Google account.
To be honest, I have always had strong reservations about joining Google+ because of the horror stories I’ve read about not being able to unjoin without losing all the services you have connected to that account because they make it nearly impossible to do it. Also, I find Google+ to be VERY invasive. It’s like it wants to get into all your business and merge all your accounts into one; forever using pop-up notifications, asking you, "Would you like to use the same name on this account? Would you like to use one email address?"
And I'm not interested in doing either of those things because I want to keep my two accounts separate.
Sometimes Google gives me the creeps because it’s like they’re always monitoring and watching what you're doing...
As you can tell from the social media buttons on my sidebar, I don’t belong to many. And even the ones I do belong to I don’t really use them to socialize, I use them more for either hosting my pictures and videos, or use them for research. So truthfully, I don't need another social media account.
For me, blogging takes up most of my time. And blogging is where I find the most quality of online socializing, community, and creativity.
Anyway, the reason I wanted to share this post is to get your feedback on Google+, if I could.
Do you use it?
Do you like it?
And if you do use it and like it, what do you use it for and what are some of the benefits?
Or...do you regret ever getting involved with it?
Thank you for your feedback, peeps!
*Note: I'm sure after Google reads this they will delete all my accounts associated with them and abolish me from the Internet. So if I suddenly disappear, please know that I'm probably floating around in cyberspace without any name, rank or serial number.
I'll just be an Internet void. Lost in space...
Have a SUPER weekend everyone!
